Can I drive my scooter on the roadway or sidewalks?
Popular motorized scooters raise concerns and questions. WisDOT has issued a reminder that motorized scooters may not be used on public roads and sidewalks. Although a wide variety of motorized scooters are sold by various retail outlets statewide in recent months, the small gas or electric-powered scooters do not meet National Highway Traffic Safety Commission standards for motor vehicle safety. As a result, they can't be registered and can't be operated on any street or sidewalk within a roadway's right-of-way. Paul Nilsen from WisDOT's Office of General Counsel notes that the law treats motorized scooters just like lawn tractors, all-terrain vehicles, go-carts and other off-road vehicles. In addition, anyone operating one on a street or sidewalk without a driver's license could face charges for doing so. For juveniles, such a citation could make them ineligible for a driver's license when they turn 16. Motorized scooters may be operated on private property where the owner has given consent.
